Cleanliness and dressing well are important parts of feeling good at any age. However, as we get older, simple tasks like bathing and dressing can become more and more difficult. For individuals with injuries, arthritis and other physical challenges, Comfort Keepers can provide necessary hygiene services as part of our elder in home care assistance. Our caregivers understand that this can be an uncomfortable situation for seniors and work hard to make sure clients receive the dignity and respect that is required of such a private and personal ritual daily.
Our home care assistance for bathing and hygiene can include help with showering, hair washing, tooth brushing, shaving and much more. Caregivers understand that each senior’s routine and comfort levels are different and work to accommodate those individual needs. Our primary focus is on comfort and safety. Elder in home care aides provide physical assistance getting seniors into and out of the tub or shower to prevent slips and falls and help with drying and applying post-shower powders and lotions.
Seniors who are confined to the bed will likely require bed baths, which a care aide can administer with the proper amount of towels, toiletries and water to make sure your loved one is properly cleaned.
Once your senior is clean, we can provide assistance with pre-dressing rituals including moisturizing, shaving and deodorant application. If your loved one also needs assistance with dressing, our care experts can help them choose what clothing they would like to wear and assist them in making sure the items are put on properly and safely. Elder in home care providers can also help seniors comb and dry hair and even style it if requested.
If your loved one needs extra help with dressing, showering or hygiene-related tasks, our home care assistance providers may be able to help. Please contact our Comfort Keepers Rapid City office today for more information.
